Sometimes I find myself thinking of pain, why there is pain? What is it trying to teach me? Did I create it myself? How can I stop the pain? Am I observing my pain or I am deep in it? Is there worst kind of pain? Have you noticed sometimes doing the right thing hurts so bad? What on earth is up with that!
I believe I do observe my pain, but I don’t think I am good at stopping myself from creating it. In my opinion worst kind of pain is when your heart is filled with heaviness, you feel that ache, it wants to turn into scream or cry. I can’t believe I have never screamed in my whole life, To be honest I don’t even know if I can scream? Maybe next time a friend needs to take me somewhere to scream, ( I would never do it myself) 😁
But why there is pain? It is always teaching me something about myself, if I am willing to listen. And it has made me so much stronger than what I was. I don’t remember who said this quote but it goes something like this: ” If you focus on the hurt you will continue to suffer, but if you focus on the lesson, you will continue to grow. ” I have been through physical pain for some years and once an elderly asked me what it’s trying to tell you and darn it, I knew exactly what it was telling me.
At the end, listen listen listen to your body and see what the pain is telling you. I sometimes ask my son to draw his feelings, maybe next time I need to draw pain!
